Saying that body scanners that can see through clothes violate Islamic law, Muslim-American groups are supporting a "fatwa" -- a religious ruling -- that forbids Muslims from going through the scanners at airports.
The Fiqh Council of North America, a body of Islamic scholars, issued a fatwa that says going through the airport scanners would violate Islamic rules on modesty.
"It is a violation of clear Islamic teachings that men or women be seen naked by other men and women," reads the fatwa. "Islam highly emphasizes haya [modesty] and considers it part of faith. The Quran has commanded the believers, both men and women, to cover their private parts."
The Muslim groups are urging members to undergo patdowns instead.
BULLSHIT!! Just another way to get around the system....soon you'll see signs in airports:
MUSLIMS GO THIS WAY ----->
EVERYBODY ELSE Go HERE ------>
This country is rapidly become a country of religious seperation.
